Secondary Water in Ogden
At a work session with the Ogden City Council, Weber Basin and Pineview Water presented the outlook on secondary water for Ogden. They said that south of the Ogden River, secondary water would not happen. There several reasons for this and that is (1)It would be too expensive for add any more lines south of the Ogden River because we are built-out, (2) Those coming on to the secondary water system would have to have water shares to give to Weber Basin or Pineview. They said that the area north of the river could be developed for secondary water because of the irrigation companies located in that area. I am working with pineview water and our irrigation company to see if this could be done. This would be a large project to develop and the citizens would have see if they would be willing to give up their water shares and have the expense of secondary water. They said also that in the future, secondary will be metered.
